My Students

I teach Spanish in a public school in Manhattan. My students are a diverse group in all aspects, ethnically and socioeconomically. They are energetic, fearless, and very creative. They are used to classrooms being very bland and not very colorful. However, when they come into my class I try to create a colorful and positive space.

My students have a lot of personality and love teaching me about new apps and everything to do with technology, as well as the new music they are into.

My Project

The Cricut machine will help make bulletin boards and the classroom more colorful and engaging for students, creating an environment where they want to learn. This will also allow students to create better projects and have the tools here in school for those who may not have anything at home. Students often do not complete projects, not because they do not want to, but because they do not have the tools to be creative and this machine will help with that so that every student can create what they want and be creative.

The students need to feel engaged and excited to learn from the moment they walk into the classroom, and the look of the classroom can immensely affect how the student feels.
